Those of us living in and around D.C. - not just those of us, like me, who actually root for Baltimore's teams over Washington's - should follow the lead of our good neighbors to the north and realize that there can be life after a change of name for a professional football team. Baltimore eventually embraced the Ravens after losing the Colts, and Washington can do the same for the Redskins' replacement. The legends and the mythology associated with the Redskins name of course are powerful: Super Bowl championships under Joe Gibbs; Messrs.

HERNDON, Va. -- The Washington Redskins must be living right.How else can you explain the hated NFC Eastern Division rival Dallas Cowboys agreeing to a deal that allowed the Skins to move up in yesterday's NFL draft to capture the player they wanted?How else to explain former Redskins and now San Diego Chargers general manager Bobby Beathard calling to offer his 1992 first-round draft choice for the Redskins' second-round pick in this year's draft and their fifth-round choice in 1992?Just call it pure good fortune, plus some splendid maneuvering on the part of Redskins general manager Charley Casserly, who could be escaping the shadow cast by his predecessor, Beathard.

GREEN BAY, Wis. - The Washington Redskins again failed to score a touchdown last night and were crushed by the Green Bay Packers, 37-0, before 59,771 flag-waving fans at Lambeau Field. Routed 30-3 by the San Diego Chargers in their opener, the Redskins have been outscored 67-3 and have given Marty Schottenheimer the first 0-2 start in his 15-year NFL coaching career. This also is the first time in Redskins history that they have failed to score a touchdown in their first two games. Last night's game was the club's first shutout loss since 1993, and its first on the road since 1971.

WASHINGTON -- Can you believe this home-field advantage?The Washington Redskins have a special one this year. They keep playing home games against teams that are missing their star player.They blanked the Detroit Lions, who played without Barry Sanders, in their home opener. They blanked the Phoenix Cardinals, who played without starting quarterback Timm Rosenbach, in their second home game.They made it a trifecta last night, when they blanked the Philadelphia Eagles, 23-0, at RFK Stadium before 55,198 fans, including Vice President Dan Quayle, to boost their overall mark to 5-0.That's three home games and three shutouts.

Never has one game delivered such telling impact and effect. It changed the face of football much the way the nuclear age drastically altered the concept of modern warfare. The ignominious fate of the Washington Redskins losing 73-0 was the most momentous humiliation any city or franchise has suffered at the major-league professional level.In what was supposed to be its finest hour, the National Football League matched its two best teams in the 1940 championship event, the Redskins and Chicago Bears.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Jeff Hostetler had caught the New York Giants' larcenous act once before this season. That experience ended in an unsightly tie for the Washington Redskins. This one ended in utter embarrassment.For the second time in three weeks, the Giants picked Hostetler's pockets clean, and this time the Redskins limped home from the Meadowlands with a desultory 30-10 loss.Hostetler, the Redskins' reserve quarterback pressed into starter's duty a week ago because of Gus Frerotte's fractured hip, threw four interceptions and lost a fumble in yesterday's rematch against the Giants.

WASHINGTON -- Art Monk keeps moving up the National Football League receiving ladder.The veteran Washington Redskins' wide receiver became the third player to catch 700 passes in a career and stretched his consecutive-game string to 110 -- the fifth-longest in NFL history -- in the team's 31-17 victory over the New Orleans Saints yesterday.Monk, who barely kept his streak alive with one catch against the Philadelphia Eagles Monday night, made four receptions for 43 yards and one touchdown.

LANDOVER - Less than a minute into his interview, Washington Redskins receiver Irving Fryar stated why tonight's game against Tennessee is so important to him. And it had nothing to do with the fact that the Redskins (6-2) and Titans (6-1) are at the top of their respective divisions. "I got to prove that I'm not a coward now," Fryar said. "It was said that I'm like a driver who is asleep at the wheel." Former Redskins great John Riggins made those comments two weeks ago after Fryar was carted off the field in the third quarter of a 17-14 win at Philadelphia.

As public hearings begin next dooor in Anne Arundel County on Jack Kent Cooke's proposed stadium in Laurel, you won't find us cheering wildly from the sidelines.The project belongs 14 miles up the road, next to Oriole Park on a site designed specifically for that purpose. But the Redskins are talking about putting a 78,000-seat stadium and enough parking for 27,000 cars in the middle of suburbia, where roads and other infrastructure cannot handle the burden without expensive, taxpayer-funded improvements.

TEMPE, Ariz. -- How bad is it?It has gotten so bad that the Washington Redskins can't even beat the Phoenix Cardinals."We're probably at rock bottom right now," coach Richie Petitbon said after the Redskins were drilled by the Cardinals, 36-6, yesterday before 48,143 at Sun Devil Stadium.It was the first time the Redskins (1-5) have been swept by the Cardinals since 1974. They had won 30 of the past 37 games from the Cardinals (2-4), who haven't been able to beat any other team -- not even the New England Patriots -- this year.

WASHINGTON -- For the beleaguered Washington Redskin offensive line, the timing couldn't be worse.Still somewhat shellshocked after the 23-10 licking in Dallas Monday night when they lost the battle at the line of scrimmage, the linemen have to regroup in time for another tough challenge today against the Atlanta Falcons at RFK Stadium.There's no secret about what the Falcons' strategy is. They're going to come after the Redskins with the blitz. That's the style Atlanta coach Jerry Glanville usually plays.
